7:05 am
in arizona. ron barber just won gabby giffords' seats. good morning representative. >> caller: how are you stephanie. good to be here. >> stephanie: good to hear you. ron barber, what a great congressman he's going to make. >> caller: 's good and decent person. his victory affirms the fact that there is not only a place but the ability for decent people who want to do the right thing to get elected despite all the hits he took in that campaign. he kept very positive, and the voters responded. he won by a bigger margin against kelly than gabby had done in the previous election. so i think his ability to retain the seat after defeating kelly and the tea party has just been
7:06 am
enhanced for the general election. >> stephanie: congressman i was just going to say i've been there doing sexy liberal shows in tucson and phoenix. there are people who are glad to reclaim arizona from this pea party craziness. because arizona has become known for its craziness. >> caller: and well deserved. we've become a petry dish for crazy legislation. arizona has been that experiment experimenttation area. everything from 1070 which we'll hear from the supreme court to birther to guns in schools restricting women's rights. name it and it has pasted that legislature. >> stephanie: i heard your colleague on my friend bill press' show this morning. she said we're going to get good
7:07 am
news on the legislation in healthcare anded about news on the 1070. >> caller: i hope she's right on healthcare and wrong about the 1070. i came in apprehensive on the hearing on 1070 and left even more so based on the questions roberts, scalia were asking of the solicitor general. i just felt that you know, the central core part of it, which is the profiling part, will--i hope is not retained, but that seemed to be where the questions were going. if that's retained, then the court of the law is retained. >> stephanie: representative speaking of curious things about arizona, sheriff arpaiop explain this to me. he arrested a six-year-old
7:08 am
undocumented immigrant on the same day that the president announces his new policy halting deportation for undocumented immigrants. he said that was a complete coincidence. you know, i just--i guess what i wonder about sheriff arpaio. he said this will not impact his approach toward young--they'll still be arrested. can he do that? that's my question. >> caller: the whole issue we've had with homeland security during this whole time, and i think the president in a very historic and bold way clarified it, is if you have arpaio, basically applying the law regardless how he sees it, not as it being a federal law instructed to by the executive branch and homeland security, homeland security needs to stop corporating at a local left and
7:09 am
quit as he, you know, there is an issue. he has to turn those people over. if the process is to quit moving forward with the deportation and the prosecution, then arpaio can go through these meaningless exercises which are disruptive and hurtful to communities but arpaio he has made his cache on picking up a group of people and that his political cache. you know, he's under investigation. >> stephanie: i was going to say, for multiple human rights-- >> caller: for human rights-- >> stephanie: using taxpayer's fund to investigate the president's birth certificate. can he do that? >> caller: he seems to get away with it at maricopa county. he used the excuse that he's an
7:10 am
elected official, therefore he can. as this court case proceeds you'll see that there has been a violation of not only civil rights law but a serious misappropriation of federal dollars in terms of law enforcement support that have been misdirected. and misdirected and more in a political machine that he has up there than the law enforcement machine. i say that because a predominant predominantly latino area of phoenix, 400 sex crimes, and after two years they have not been investigated, and this included children. that was one of the issues that the justice department was looking at as well. so you know, there is plenty of things that are arpaio has done that will come home to roost. it's the frustration for many of us is that it's taken so long. >> stephanie: yes, congressman obviously the president's--this move is a very bold one.
7:11 am
i love how people accuse him of playing politics. last poll i saw he was ahead 30 or 40 points over mitt romney with latinos. he hardly had a to do this. i believe he did this because it was the right thing to do. congress would not act on the dream act. >> caller: i think he had no choice. you know, as frustrating it might have been for some of us, the think the president made a sincere effort, stephanie to try to work with the other side to try to work with republican leadership to craft whether it's immigration, healthcare, or the whole economic and financial picture of this country. and at every turn there is a rejection of any effort toward compromise or consensus. their mantra has been to watch him fail. >> stephanie: frankly, what do you think of mitt romney continually saying, he had a democratic house in congress, and house and senate, again, it
7:12 am
is pat tently true and he knows it. it was the passed in the house and then filibustered in the senate because we had to senators who were li'l ill and not there. >> caller: when you don't receive a single vote in that unfortunate magical number of 60 from the senate from the republicans, nothing will happen. they knew that and they stone walled this. i find it the height of hypocrisy for the mayor in arizona right after the decision by obama who said this was politically motivated and this was the same individuals who tooth and nail fought for the last two and a half years not to allowed any semblance of immigration reform to proceed in congress. >> stephanie: excuse me, representative, but mitt romney has earned his low numbers. he took the hardest line against immigrants in the republican primaries, did he not?
7:13 am
>> caller: yeah, and this are consequences to the pannedry. assuming that this is a blind con sit wentcy who is not intelligent and not watching and reading about these candidates is a mistake. romney stepped right in it. i don't care what magic trick rubio was talking about or anybody else, it was not going to change the fundamental impression. >> stephanie: you can't take back that video clip, representative, of him saying, yes, i will absolutely veto the dream act. now there is a poll out saying president obama is close to what you call earlier enthusiasm deficit with key latino voters in battleground states. the report is shockingly it's unpopular among hispanic. he was the one who said this.
7:14 am
>> caller: the hispanics in the country enthusiasticcally supported the president and the 60% of the of the young general. i think there is buyers remorse and i think people are looking at the tea party as obstructionist on every level. i think the president looked bold. look how low the ratings are of congress. the fact that he said you guys aren't going to do anything. i'm going to do it. i think actually helps him. >> stephanie: representative raul grijalva, always a pleasure to talk with you. thank you for checking in this morning. >> caller: not a problem. >> stephanie: what a hero. >> you mangled his name on the last one. >> stephanie: hush. you spotlight my mistakes. >> because you said it to him.
